Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 1

### If the work done by p men in (p + 2) days is to the work done by (p + 4) men in (p – 1) days is in the ratio 1 : 1, then the value of p is

Detailed Solution for Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 1
By taking the value of p = 4 from Option (b), the required ratio of 1 : 1 is achieved.

Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 2

### If p and q are positive integers then √2 always lies between:

Detailed Solution for Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 2

Suppose you take p = 3 and q = 2. It can be clearly seen that the square root of 2 does not lie between 2 and 3. Hence, option (b) is incorrect. Further with these values for p and q option (a) also can be ruled out since it means that the value should lie between 5 and 6 which it obviously does not. Also, Option (d) gives 6 / 5 and 1 / 6. This means that the value should lie between 0.1666 and 1.2 (which it obviously does not). Hence, option (c) is correct.

Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 3

### Monthly incomes of E and R are in the ratio 1 : 3 and their expenses are in the ratio 19 : 40. E saves Rs. 18,860 less than that R and in total they save Rs. 36,020. Income of E and R respectively are:

Detailed Solution for Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 3

Let income of E be Rs. p and income of R be Rs. 3p Let expenses of E be Rs. 19q and expenses of R be Rs. 40q Hence, savings of E = Rs. (p – 19q) and savings of R

= Rs. (3p – 40q)

Total savings = (4p – 59q) = 36020

Difference of savings = (2p – 21q) = 18860

Solving the above equations, we get p = 10480,

Thus, the income of E and R is Rs. 10,480 and Rs. 31, 440 respectively.

Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 4

The incomes of Sheldon, Leonard, and Howardare in the ratio of 4 : 5 : 6 respectively and their spending are in the ratio of 6 : 7 : 8 respectively. If Sheldon saves one fourth his income, then the savings of Sheldon, Leonard, and Howardare in the ratio:

Detailed Solution for Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 4
Let the incomes be 4x, 5x, 6x and the spending be 6y, 7y, 8y And savings are (4x–6y),(5x–7y) & (6x–8y)

Sheldon saves 1 / 4th of his income.

Therefore 4x – 6y = 4x / 4

4x – 6y = x

3x = 6y

x / y = 2

Therefore y = x / 2

Ratio of Sheldon’s Leonard’s & Howard’s savings = 4x – 6y : 5x – 7y : 6x – 8y

= x : 5x – 7y : 6x – 8y

= x : 5x – 7x / 2 : 6x – 8x / 2 = x : 3x / 2 : 2x

= 2 : 3 : 4

Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 5

A vessel contains p litres of wine and another vessel contains q litres of water. r litres are taken out of each vessel and transferred to the other. If r X (p + q) = pq. If A and B are the respective values of the amount of wine contained in the respective containers after this operation, then what can be said about the relationship between A and B.

Detailed Solution for Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 5
The constraint given to us for the values of p, q, and r is r X (p + q) = pq So,if we take p = 6, q = 3 and r = 2, we have 18 = 18 and a feasible set of values for p, q and r respectively. With this set of values, we can complete the operation as defined and see what happens. Wine left in the vessel A = 4 = (6 – 2)

Wine in the vessel B = 2

With these values none of the first 3 options matches. Thus, option (d) is correct.

Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 6

The volume of a pyramid varies jointly as its height and the area of its base; and when the area of the base is 60 square dm and the height 14 dm, the volume is 280 cubic dm. What is the area of the base of a pyramid whose volume is 390 cubic dm and whose height is 26 dm?

Detailed Solution for Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 6

V = k AH -> 280 = k X 60 X 14
⇒ 280 = 840k.
Thus, k = 1 / 3 and the equation becomes

V = AH / 3 and 390 = 26A / 3 -> A = 45.

Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 7

The expenses of an all boys’ institute are partly constant and partly vary as the number of boys. The expenses were ` 10,000 for 150 boys and ` 8400 for 120 boys. What will the expenses be when there are 330 boys?

Detailed Solution for Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 7
Expenses for 120 boys = 8400

Expenses for 150 boys = 10000.

Thus, variable expenses are 1600 for 30 boys.

If we add 180 more boys to make it 330 boys,

we will get an additional expense of 1600 X 6 = 9600.

Total expenses are Rs 19600.

Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 8

Total expenses of running the hostel at IIM Ahmedabad are partly fixed and partly varying linearly with the number of boarders. The average expense per boarder is Rs.70 when there are 25 borders and Rs.60 when there are 50 borders. What is the average expense per border when there are 100 borders?

Detailed Solution for Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 8
When there are 25 borders, the total expenses are Rs.1750. When there are 50 borders, the total expenses are Rs. 3000. The change in expense due to the coming in of 25 borders is Rs. 1250. Hence, expense per boarder is equal to Rs.50. This also means that when there are 25 borders, the variable cost would be 25 X 50 = Rs.1250. Hence, Rs.500 must be the fixed expenses.

So for 100 boarders, the total cost would be: Rs. 500

(fixed) + Rs. 5000 = Rs.5500

Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 9

An alloy of gold and silver is taken in the ratio of 1 : 2, and another alloy of the same metals is taken in the ratio of 2 : 3. How many parts of the two al- loys must be taken to obtain a new alloy consisting of gold and silver that are in the ratio 3 : 5?

(b)3 and 5

Detailed Solution for Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 9
You can use allegations between 33.33% and 40% to get 37.5%.

Hence the ratio of mixing must be 2.5 : 4.16 -> 3 : 5.

Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 10

The sum of three numbers x, y, z is 5000. If we reduce the first number by 50, the second number by 100, and the third number by 150, then the new ratio of x & y = 4 : 5 & the new ratio of y & z =3 : 4. What is the value of x + y ?

Detailed Solution for Ratio And Proportion Practice Test - 1 - Question 10
If new values of x, y, z are x′, y′ and z′, and respectively then x′ : y ′= 4 : 5, y′ : z′ = 3 : 4

x′ : y′ : z′ = 12 : 15 : 20

x + y + z = 5000

x′ + 50 + y′ + 100 + z′ + 150 = 5000 x′ + y′ + z′ = 4700

12k + 15k + 20k = 4700 k = 100

x = 1200 + 50 = 1250

y = 1500 + 100 = 1600 z = 2000 + 150 =2150

x + y = 1250 + 1600 = 2850
